How many homes has Dr. Phill bought lately?

OK, so I just posted a touchy feely blog  about all agents being equal.  But I wanted to clarify myself with a new blog.  Why....More points.......NO!!! Duh!!!

I was just getting too tangential in the old one. 

I ask my agents a question allot.  That question being who are you reaching out to?  Who is your sphere of influence?  Who even knows you are in the Real Estate business? 

Then I will even go so far as to ask, how many homes has Dr. Phil bought lately?  You see there are so many agents that will sit on their couch and watch TV all day.  Then call me on my way home (8:00 PM usually)  to ask what they can do to improve their sales.

I am a comedian by nature, a Hard-nosed soldier by training, and a realtor by career.  So I call it like it is.  I will say things like ......

 1) Order a pizza and when the guy gets there, sell him a house, because that is the only other person you are going to see all day.

2) Pray for a burglary.   and follow that script.

3) You have a great relationship with Dr. Phil, ask him if he knows anyone who will be needing to buy or sell real....you know the spiel.

Some of you are going to say.....But Gary (which is a funny thing to say to yourself) you wrote that touchy feely blog.

Right, and I said, if you are content, then I am OK.  But if you are not, we might have an issue.  So if you are sitting on your couch feeling sorry for yourself and Dr. Phil makes you feel better.......call him and as him....

Love it.  I always say that I don't spend much time working from home because no one on Days of our Lives has ever bought a house from me.  I try not to dawdle too much in the office, either, because nobody there has ever bought a home from me either.  Great post.

Gary, you are in trouble now.  All those animal rights people are going to be picketing your home & office tomorrow. That poor little kitty!

I have a wonderful 2200 Square foot office that is empty most of the day.  Agents come and go, but normally it is just my office manager, myself, and the receptionist.  When my friends drop in for a visit, they always ask, where everyone is, and I always say, there is no money in here; it is al out on the street.  That is where they are, on the street. 

Mornings and afternoons are when my office is crowded, but in the middle........just we three little mice. 

 

 

Ummmm....Lychee; wait, what the hell is a lycheeeeee?

Let them stay at home. That means more business for the rest of us! I recall that line about "You can lead a horse to the water but you can't make him drink".

I'm off to my office now to meet a client. But working from home has it plusses for me. I have 300 potential sellers in my building. My neighbors love talking about real estate. So I think I'm being productive.
